“David, even though this house was newer, my agent insisted I have it inspected. I told her if she feels it needs an inspection, she can pay for it. After three hours, you have shown me the value of an professional inspection.”
“My agent gave me your information among several others. She said not to ask just the price, but to interview the inspector to see if we felt comfortable with the information they could provide on the phone. After several phone calls to several inspectors, you gave us more information about what an inspector should actually do that just made sense. Your report is so easy to understand as well as thorough. This was the best investment toward our new house we could make.”
Serena and Ben
“My agent suggested I hire an inspector, and gave me your information. One phone call and we were convinced we had an inspector who would provide us with what we needed to know. By the time we were done we felt this expenditure was the best investment into our house. Thank you so much.”
Glen and Alitia, Alliston
“David. Wow! This report is so thorough! And so understandable. My last report I could not figure out what it meant. This is fantastic! Thank you so much!”
Caroline, Wasaga Beach
* This couple walked, then came back two weeks later: Hi Dave, Just wanted to thank you again for today. You did an awesome job, and we were very happy with the result, meaning we didn’t get in over our heads. We both look forward to dealing with you in the near future. Have a good night.
“When you inspected my house, you were a pain in the a** as you documented so much. The buyers showed me your report. You covered everything. I kept your card and information for the past two years. And today you did the same for me. Thanks for such a thorough report. I know what I am getting into.”
Thanks ever so much David, just to let you know, the electrician did finally show up and the cost was going to be over $4200.00 to fix the wiring. The very interesting thing is that the Company that came to inspect, and found fault with the electrical panel, was the same company that installed the panel. Quite interesting, the really funny thing is that the owners wanted the buyers to pay for the roof repair as well as the electrical issues, Imagine!!!! To make a long storey short, the deal is now dead, the buyers have ran for the Hills, and I will find them another home. Thank you ever so much David for your input and thorough inspection, it was greatly appreciated. If you every require a testimonial, just call me any time, my buyers greatly appreciated your findings, prior to them purchasing this property.
Hi Dave, … You aren’t a deal killer, but you do help me sleep at night! Keep up the great work.
Cathy, Wasaga Beach
David, I also wanted to thank you for the amazing effort you put forth on the inspection at ## #### in Tiny! The buyer had so many questions and you had all the answers and patience to do such a thorough job! Your name has definitely been mentioned anytime someone asks AND I also have a list of service providers that I recommend to my clients and you are on there as well.

A restaurant owner – for whom I inspected a house and the restaurant itself – approached me personally to say: “That home inspection was the best money I’ve ever spent! After reviewing the electrical items with you, I didn’t end up buying the house – you saved me so much money!” “I am looking at another house next week and will be having my agent arrange the inspection with you.“
Dear David Cook, You recently did a home inspection for me in Alliston. I want to thank you for expert service and knowledge, even under the circumstances at the property.
“Dear David, Thank you so much for the great job you did on our home inspection this past Monday. We were very impressed with how thorough you were and we now feel very comfortable about our home purchase. Thank you for all your helpful tips and advice. We really appreciate you coming all the way down to Toronto to do the home inspection for us. Best Regards,”
Jared & Nadia, Etobicoke
“They really like this house. Your inspection revealed a lot they were not expecting. The way you explained it to them, they are looking forward to tackling these items. They were ready to sign the release waiver as soon as you reviewed your report on the house with them, and he has not even seen the house in person yet!” The house was over 100 years old, had among other items, Several decayed floor joists that need replacing A crawl space that needed venting. 2 separate floor areas that needed replacement 11 broken roof rafters that needed repair Vermiculite in the attic “When I talked to you on the phone you mentioned some things that made me feel you would do a good job. My parents talked you to a different time and gave me your card. My agent gave me your card and advised you were good as well as helpful. I did expect you to do a good job but came away feeling I got far more help than I expected. I appreciate all the time you spent answering my questions.”
“Wow, this covers far more than I ever thought.”
Ben, Wasaga Beach
“Is this ever thorough, I never would have thought to look for these things. What you cover is amazing.”
Louise, Wasaga Beach
“David, Attached please find the photos from yesterday. Thanks again for the good job.”
“This is so thorough, and you even test the appliances”
Julie, an Agent
“Thanks for going far beyond what you needed to, it really made my client feel he is being taken care of.”
Dave, an Agent
“This is so professional, thanks for explaining things so thoroughly to my clients”
Lydia, an Agent
“Thanks for explaining things so thoroughly to my client. I have learned a lot. Now I can go home and check some of these items on my own house.”
Gail, an Agent
“I thought I had a lot of questions written down to ask. You have covered every single one of them plus a lot more than I would have thought important.”
Louise, Wasaga Beach
“I buy and sell houses for a living, I have had six home inspections to date. The way you went about the inspection, blew me away. You were so thorough and helpful. I am not only having you do all my inspections, but I am telling every agent in the office”
Will, an Agent.
“I have been advising all my clients to get an inspection for the last few years. I have used several home inspectors in the past, but I know I have found one that will really help my clients. Thanks for such a great job”
Brenda, an Agent
“We thought there might be some things that needed attention but not sure how to approach them. When you advised not just how to take care of these, but the way to prevent future problems we felt comfortable with the house. Our daughter and son in law will be calling you next week.“
Walter and Catherine, Barrie
“My agent suggested an inspector, but my parents in law had you do their house and advised us to call you. They were right! We feel so informed about the house now that you have seen it and advised us of some things we would never have noticed, but showed us how to tackle the items involved. It will be a piece of cake.”
I'd like to take the time to thank you for such a thorough job you did at the home inspection on Tuesday. You were not overly picky over the small stuff which I liked (especially in an older home) but payed closer attention to and spotted the BIG problems on our hands (or that could have been on our hands). Needless to say that although I loved that house and was disappointed with what was found on the inside.....we had decided to walk away. Too many large ticket items... I think I will always wonder what happened to this trusses and joists in the attic!! Thanks again and we will be sure to call you up for the next house, hopefully sooner then later.
Andrea & Jeff Telford
We've had David do 2 inspections now on 2 separate occasions. We were very impressed with his experience and knowledge, as well as the thoroughness of his report. His services definitely reduced the anxiety of buying a new home!
